With the rise of the use of medicinal cannabis and the inclusion of CBD in many products, the choice of the variety or varieties of hemp for cultivation is becoming increasingly important for the producer, who can see how easily the yield in CBD Total can be doubled if that choice is correct. However, and as every professional hemp grower knows, his activity is subject to the THC limit present in its plants allowed by the corresponding legislation, so that each country has its own limits and regulations.
In today’s article we are going to introduce you to some of the best varieties that can be purchased with a THC content less than 1%, so that they can be cultivated in certain countries without any type of legal problem by not exceeding the limit established in the respective jurisprudence. In addition, we will also present some of the varieties of certified hemp we offer in our store.
THC y cannabis legal
As we say, being THC a psychoactive substance It is controlled by the legislation of each country, so we can find varieties that are legal in one country and not in another due to their THC content. Each country establishes its maximum THC limit in the varieties that are going to be legally registered and cultivated (of course with a cultivation license), so it is very important that the producer has updated information on these limits in order to work with complete peace of mind. It is for this reason that in so many countries seeds with high THC cannot be legally acquired for professional cultivation, because due to its high THC content – which exceeds the established limit – it would be an illegal crop.
In certain countries, and always complying with the provisions of the law, they can also be grown legally THC-rich plants, which greatly expands the range of possibilities for the producer. However, varieties rich in THC with all their papers in order (phytosanitary certificates, certificates of origin, etc.) are not abundant in the market, and these types of certificates are usually an important requirement when obtaining a permit for cultivation. Be that as it may, the important thing in the present case is to underline the convenience of ensuring that the cultivated varieties fall within the range of cultivars allowed by law.
CBD in cannabis
Yes, cannabis contains CBD, but not always and in all cases in the same amount; some varieties do not produce CBDOthers produce a small%, while in others it is the cannabinoid with the most presence, reaching more than 15%. However, within each variety we can also find certain differences in chemotype of each plant, with values for cannabinoids and terpenes that can differ significantly from one individual to another. For this reason, it is very important to choose varieties that are as stabilized as possible, so that we find the minimum variation between the values promised in the certificate and those that we will actually obtain in the field.
Of course, if the crop is intended for CBD extraction, it will be very important to plant stable and rich varieties in this cannabinoid, although here a note should be made: we can find a variety that produces, say, 10% CBD but whose plant mass production is very poor, so that in the end it does not we will get a great amount of CBD per m2 of cultivation. For this reason, it is crucial to try to focus not on the production of plant mass per m2, nor only on the% of CBD, but on a combination of several factors that gives us an approximate% of CBD per m2 of cultivation. How much flower does a certain variety produce per m2? And how much resin per gram of plant matter?
If we look closely at these parameters, we will realize that there are cannabis strains that produce a lot of flower, but that in the end can end up producing much less CBD per m2 of crop than others that produce less flower but with much more resin (or that have a higher% CBD). Thus, depending on the final product (flower or extract) it may be more convenient to use one variety or another. We are not going to cultivate a certain area if we can achieve the same yield with half the cultivated area, it is much more profitable to do a good choice of variety!
